Giant Yellowjackets

Have you ever met these hornets that look like giant yellowjackets?  Here is a picture of one giving a Lilac branch a bear hug.
They sure love the branches of Lilac bushes... as evidenced by the photo above.
Stand by for more on these large black-and-yellow hornets.


  1. Dana, I wouldn't have realized I wasn't looking at a Yellowjacket if I had seen one of these Hornets. I'm hoping you're going to tell me how to tell the difference in your next post.

    1. Sybil,
      Thanks for the great idea! I hunted up a yellowjacket to photograph side-by-side with one of these hornets so they can be easily compared.
